This semi-portable horizontal tube expander can expand two tubes per cycle. Because of it sizes, it makes it more versatile for smaller shops.

Vertical Tube Expansion

The vertical line is composed of the Double Sided Conventional – DE, LDE-Low Profile – Double Side, LSE – Low Profile – Single Side, Low Profile Expander – LSEM, and the Single Sided Conventional – SE. The vertical machines are designed with saving space in mind. The double sided machines are capable of doing two separate jobs at once to save time. The low profile machines are designed to save up to 22% in head room.

Semi-Portable Expanders

Semi-portable expanders are designed to be much more mobile than the larger counterparts. Because of the more versatile portable systems, they are ideal for smaller shops. Also, they can still produce a large amount of volume.  Finally, our tube end sizers are used for sizing of the thin walled copper.
